Review: Well, one thing that isn't good about this field is that it is open on Sat. only and the Hours are pretty fixed. Everything is very structured teams are picked and adhered to and refs direct what games are played based on the number of players and what they want to do. They make sure that everyone chronos, under 300 except rental which are 250fps.

They allow enhanced fire modes, which I enjoy. Blind firing and bunkering are allowed IIRC and any equipment hit counts. All of the games are played with a respawn zone, and a clock counts down when players come back, it is nice as the action keeps going.

Price was a little high, but not outrageous the Staff was numerous and helpful, There really isn't any proshop to speak of, just a shack with the air system and rentels and such but, I don't think many people come to a field to buy the new DM7 or anything so that really isn't much of an issue. More paint choices would be nice however, I really wish they had arctic inferno or some other winter paint since all of the paint was busting (it was very cold out).

There were food services however, I got their late so I am not sure how that works. The Fields where top notch, very good construction, nothing that would fall apart if you climed on it. The only field I think that wasn't good was their "Halo" field where you play a type of king of the hill (with Halo 2 video game rules) with instant respawn, I felt the quality of that field was simpily not as good as the others, it felt like poor mans speedball the whole time. The games are in a wooded area however, 85% of all cover is hardcover and usually forts or bulding, sandbags, etc VERY enjoyable military simulation type play.

This field does not carry CO2 however, they will let you borrow a 48/3k which while small is adequete and while I would perfer to have some CO2 support I usually use HPA anyway so it isn't a big issue. The Refs are there much more to make sure people don't take their googles off than to stop cheating.

Overall it is a good field I will probibly be back, but don't expect to just make games on the fly everything is very structured which is alright, but still not as good as the old TMX field in lousia (which had airball and large forts).

I would however reccomend this field over total eclipse if you at all into woodsball or saftey for that matter.
